Sea Glass Nation

Sea Glass Nation was created to bring together sea glass collectors and spread the love of searching for all kinds of treasures on oceans, lakes, and rivers all around the world. The goal is to share fun, knowledge, and thrill of collecting sea glass with other people just as excited about sea glass. We are Sea Glass Nation!

Our motto:

Malim vitreum maris colligere, which is Latin for I’d rather be collecting sea glass.

Our values:

Share the love of sea glass, be inspired by other amazing sea glass collectors, and leave the beach cleaner than you found it.

Our goal:

Build a worldwide community of sea glass collectors. We hope to build the Sea Glass Nation community to help foster friendship between our members, no matter where they live. We invite you to join our growing community. Meet new people, connect with old friends, and join with other sea glass lovers in this informal group.


A one-year membership includes a Sea Glass Nation bumper sticker, pin, membership certificate, membership card, and access to the members-only section of the website, with the list of current members and other resources. The cost is $25 plus shipping. A web-only membership is available for $5 per year, which provides access to the members-only section of the website.


A portion of all profits are donated to Ocean Conservancy, which supports a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it through innovative research, science, and policy.
